ROG X EK® ULTRABLOCK
The Z690 Extreme Glacial UltraBlock is far more than a heatsink with water channels. This product of a close collaboration with industry leader EK Water Blocks is a complete solution for custom-loop motherboard cooling, covering the CPU, VRMs, onboard M.2 slots, PCH, and even the integrated LAN. EK Active Contact Cooling can keep M.2 drives at optimal temperatures, while 57 microfins swiftly channel water over the central processor. The ROG Water-Cooling Zone offers a sensor array that continually monitors coolant flow, temperatures, and seal integrity, and the PCH cooling block features a fin stack to enhance heat dissipation. Meanwhile, the UltraBlock has an aesthetic to match its performance, thanks to the industry-first AniMe Matrix display and a 2-inch OLED LiveDash that can display live system stats.
The ROG Maximus Z690 Extreme Glacial features an arsenal of headers, sensors and tuning software to maximize the performance potential of a small army of fans and radiators.
